On our English pages, you often see the word "relationships". This is just sanitized language. On our English pages, "relationships" refers to what couples, when not sleeping, do in bed. Or, if so inclined, on the kitchen table.

English is a rather hypocritical language. Many words for natural bodily functions and processes have dirty connotations, and polite speakers like us have to go to considerable length to communicate meanings without naming them. But we nevertheless hope you get the point.


Tongkatali.org - Death from opiates


By Serge Kreutz


A few years ago, a nephew of mine died of an opiate overdose. Yes, my sister, whose son he was, was very grieved indeed. And she didn’t talk with me for many month after I told her that her grieve, of course, was selfish. She felt sorry for herself, not for her son.

By all we know about death from an overdose of opiates, he had a good death. Unintended, free of pain. Opiate overdoses are deadly because they suppress the respiratory center of the medulla in the brain stem. Basically, a person just forgets to breath, and feels no panic about this.

A rather famous German journalist with whom I covered Southeast Asia in the early 80s has died of cancer not long ago. The magazine he worked for, wrote that after he received the diagnosis, he retreated to a Himalayan hideout where he awaited death untreated, just meditating, leaving his family behind in Germany.

I don’t know whether the details are true or not. But I know that many cancers are very painful.

If I were ill with cancer, I would probably also prefer to await my end somewhere in the Himalayas. At least that’s a part of the world that still is very lenient about the use of opiates.

Maybe meditation, as well as medication, can help against cancer pain. But not if you start meditating after you were diagnosed with cancer. For meditation to work in lieu of pain medications, one would probably need a life-time of meditation practice, and the biological effect against cancer pain would still depend on morphine more precisely, in this case: endorphins, substances produced by the body, which are chemically almost identical to morphine.



Tongkatali.org's Size matters


By Serge Kreutz


The published public opinion, especially the female published opinion, is wrong in its assessment on why men are concerned about the size of their organs.

The public published opinion, and views held publicly by female commentators on the matter, assume that men are concerned about the size of their organs on the basis of a rather childish attitude just like when eight-year-old boys try a far arc while urinating, and then boast about it.

The common published opinion tends to belittle the concern of men about organ size. An example is the following remark of relationships adviser Ruth Westheimer, quoted from the TIME cover story of May 4, 1998: “Even if a man has an erection from floor to ceiling and can keep it that way for an hour, it will not be pleasurable for a woman if he is not sexually literate.”

This is making ridicule out of a serious concern.

Of course, until recently, all relationships therapists could offer men with insufficient erections, or a small organ, was some consolation of the above kind.

Published opinion may be quite different from the opinion held privately by people who are represented by a specific general published opinion. The publishing trade has its own rules on what opinions may be offered in public. The motto of a major US publication used to be (or still is): All the news that’s fit to print. (Not: All the news that’s true.) And in the opinion of newspaper editors, it’s not fit to say that organ size is of importance when assessing the qualities of a man.

Sorry, but size does matter. And men would probably not be concerned about size, if they wouldn’t have learned from intimate experience that it’s important. They learn it from their female relationships partners when discussing relationships matters. When they engage in relationships talk with their female partners, many men will be confronted with women’s fantasies in which rather large-sized male organs play a role. It’s not common that women’s fantasies center on disfigured, under-sized, or flaccid male organs.

It may be true that most women who do experience orgasms experience them clitoral. More than 90 percent of all women are easier to bring to an orgasm through clitoral stimulation than through vaginal penetration. However, there are women who prefer to be brought to an orgasm through vaginal penetration, and in such cases, sufficient size, sufficient rigidity, and sufficient staying power are absolutely necessary. Relationships technique is a distant fourth. Usually, woman who can experience vaginal orgasms will anyway apply their own technique.

Furthermore, when it comes to vaginal orgasms, no one single technique fits all women. Some prefer quick short thrusts from below, others rather have it from behind. Often, women who can experience vaginal orgasms like to do the moving, and prefer a static man.

While clitoral orgasms result in rhythmic contractions of the pelvic area, including the vagina, there often is a magic additional component in vaginal orgasms: a ballooning of the Grafenberg area (the front vaginal wall near the vaginal opening), and a move forward of the cervix. Both these reactions can exert an expelling pressure on the inserted organ. A marvelous experience, available probably only to men with a sufficiently large organ.

But even among women who can be brought to an orgasm through clitoral stimulation, the idea of big, hard organs plays a major role in their fantasies. The stimulation may be clitoral, but the fantasies that are absolutely necessary to make clitoral stimulation an orgasmic success may still center on penetration and usually on penetration by a large male organ.

While the editors of periodicals anywhere around the world may only be willing to touch the topic of organ size in a manner that ridicules the concern, organ size clearly is a major aspect when it comes to the qualities of a man as a lover.

We seldom receive email from women who are of the opinion that organ size is not important. But we regularly receive feedback that confirms that a large organ is an important attribute. Here some comments by one female reader, Ka.:

– quote –

Hello,

I stumbled on your website a few hours ago. I very much enjoyed your essays. It’s almost 5 am here (Toronto, Canada), and I just stopped reading.

I just keyed in “love” into my search engine…I don’t even know why (I guess I just wanted to focus on something sweet before bed). Your inclusion of our neurology was great. And your sincerity was refreshing. I’ll read a few more of your articles tomorrow night.

Now, I got a few questions:

1. You praise tongkat ali very much. I heard that it raises your testosterone levels through the roof (which I guess would explain irritability, and relationships desire). But do you know how it effects woman? (Not that I need help in the arousal department). Just curious.

2. In your essay: “Female Orgasm in Asia”, you spoke about the female orgasm…and so on. I need to say this (actually to all the men in the world): Please don’t act like you are on a mission in bed. There were plenty of men who were determined to give me an orgasm…and I just ended up faking it. Once it seems that the guy is on a mission…the magic is gone. For me, I can be immensely satisfied without an orgasm (if one happens: great!… but if it doesn’t…then leave it alone).

3. You also talked about organ size. Well: IT MATTERS! (At least to me). There was a time that if I liked a guy, and thought that there may be potential for a more serious relationship, I would take things slow, not sleep with him right away… bla bla… But now: I try to get him into bed quickly. I don’t want to start liking him… and so on… and then find out he is tiny down there. For me it doesn’t have to be huge, but it has to be at least average. And for me, it’s not a psychological thing. I want to feel filled! And if he is not at least average, then I don’t want to waste my time with him. I don’t want to marry a man that is small. He can give the best oral in the world… but if he can’t stuff me properly… then I’m gone. I don’t want to get emotionally attached, no matter how great they are, and then find out I’m gonna be cheating on them for sure if we continue.

Please don’t get me wrong: it doesn’t have to be mega huge… but at least average. I dated a few “small” men. Sometimes I wondered what the point of us having relationships was. Cuz for me nothing beats the main course.

4. I don’t understand how increasing dopamine levels can help a man get erect. Doesn’t cocaine increase the amount of dopamine in your synapses? But… enough cocaine… and a man just can’t get it up. I don’t get it. (I dated a cocaine user…and there were soooooooooooooooooo many disappointments.)

Don’t feel like you have to rush with the answers.

Thanks,

Ka.

P.S. Looking forward to reading more articles of yours!

Ka.,

thank you for your interesting contributions.

Tongkat ali indeed raises testosterone. This has been shown in many scientific studies.

Dopamine enhancement works for libido, not for erections. Cocaine users get sexually agitated (in the head) but can’t perform. Not only will they have weak erections; they will also typically have rather small organs, even when they do get an erection. The reason is too much sympathetic tone.

Cheers

– unquote –

Back to organ size. Luckily, organ size, like erectile capacity and staying power, can be worked upon and improved.

For erectile capacity and staying power upon demand, sildenafil citrate (Pfizer’s Blue) is the drug of first choice. Sildenafil citrate is not just for 50-year-old diabetics or 60-year-old prostatectomy survivors. Even 25-year-olds can benefit from low doses of the drug. (And the drug is a necessity for cocaine users.)

For the improvement of basic organ size, there are two options: either pull and pull with methods described as penile exercise programs, or have the Leydig cells of your testicles synthesize more testosterone. Organ and testicle size is heavily dependent on testosterone synthesis. That Leydig cells start to synthesize testosterone is what causes the organ and testicles of boys to grow to man size. Furthermore, bodybuilders or athletes who use exogenous testosterone or steroids pay for it by testicular and penile shrinkage. Because they supply more testosterone than the body (more specifically: the hypothalamus) wants, the testes shut down the Leydig cells, and the testicles and organ revert to boyhood size.

The only herbal that stimulates the Leydig cells to synthesize more testosterone is tongkat ali (Eurycoma longifolia by scientific name), which is why heavy tongkat ali usage causes penile and testicular growth, independent of erections.

Of course, more than any other organ, the organ is variable in size. The size of a organ at any given time will depend on body chemistry. Vasoconstrictive nutrients such as caffeine and theobromine, as well as drugs that enhance the sympathetic autonomous nervous system (cocaine, amphetamines) will cause temporary testicular and penile shrinkage.

Beta blockers, which increase the levels of circulating adrenaline by blocking the hormone’s binding to cardiovascular sites, thus increasing adrenaline’s effect on abdominal receptors, will temporarily reduce organ size and interfere with erectile capabilities. No permanent damage.



Tongkatali.org - Carnitine has very little potential for relationships enhancement


By Serge Kreutz


When this domain was registered, in 1999, carnitine was much hyped. But as time went by, it became clear that its usefulness as a supplement is minimal. As this is an amino acid high in meat, eating any meat or eggs will do the same.

There are loads of articles on the internet that write about carnitine, both in the scientific and in the popular media. Despite our domain name, to be a primary source of information on carnitine is beyond the scope of this website.

Rather than isolated carnitine, we also sell a number of herbal relationships enhancement products from Thailand (Paul is an off-and-on resident of Pattaya, which explains our focus on relationships supplements, rather than, for example, traditional remedies for diabetes or high blood pressure).

The Thai relationships enhancement herbals we trade are tongkat ali, butea superba, and krachai dam.

Their effectiveness for relationships purposes has been confirmed in numerous scientific and clinical studies. All three are widely used in Thailand.

Even though tongkat ali, butea superba, and krachai dam are not very well-known in the US, at lot of data has already been published about all three. It's superfluous to go into much detail again. We rather concentrate on trade at low prices.

Just that much: butea superba and tongkat ali are testosterone boosters. They are great for relationships desire, libido, and relationships sensation, even orgasms.

Krachai dam is another story. It works on penile blood vessels, similar to Pfizer’s Blue, to which it is chemically related. Both Pfizer’s Blue and krachai dam are phosphodiesterase inhibitors.

Krachai dam has many other names. The scientific name is kaempferia parviflora, a bit long for comfort. But use the scientific name if you want to check scholar.google.com for clinical studies.

Krachai dam is also known as krachai dum. Actually, the correct pronunciation of krachai dam rhymes with "rum", the Carribean sugar whiskey. But krachai dam is the common transliteration of the Thai word. "Dam" means black. So, krachai dam is also know as black ginger. But this is misleading because it's not an ingredient in Asian cuisine, but a traditional medication.

A note on the comparison between Thai and Indonesian tongkat ali: the Thai variety is more sexually stimulating.



Tongkatali.org - Ideology: A materialistic perspective (if we understand the material causes for sweet love and outrageously good relationships, then we can engineer both of it)


By Serge Kreutz


Kreutz Ideology advocates a materialistic approach to understanding of the world. “Materialistic”, in this context, does not mean: driven by concerns for material benefit.

The materialism I refer to is a philosophical concept, built on the conviction that for everything that happens in the world, even in the realm of love and relationships, there is a cause in the material world, and this cause can maybe be investigated and maybe be understood. This is what science is about.

If causes have been investigated and understood, such causes can be reenacted, or created. This is when we take the step from science to technology, and engineering.

Science and technology are applicable to the emotion of missing a loved person no less than they are to bridging the Mississippi. Which is why the first series of articles I ever wrote on love and relationships was headlined “Engineering love”.

The opposite of philosophical materialism is philosophical idealism. Now, this idealism doesn’t refer to us being idealistic in that we try to build a better world, or, on a lower scale, a working long-term love relationship. Philosophical idealism refers to the idea that there is something outside the material world, on which the material world depends.

“Idealism is the doctrine that ideas, or thought, make up either the whole or an indispensable aspect of any full reality, so that a world of material objects containing no thought either could not exist as it is experienced, or would not be fully “real.” Idealism is often contrasted with materialism, both belonging to the class of monist as opposed to dualist or pluralist ontologies. (Note that this contrast between idealism and materialism has to do with the question of the nature of reality as such. It has nothing to do with advocating high moral standards, or the like.)”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idealism

I am not a philosophical idealist. I am a philosophical materialist. I understand that humans, though not all of them, can understand, to a certain degree, what happens in the world.

As they say: the proof of the pudding is in eating it. Or, the proof of our understanding is that we can make it. This applies equally to constructing bridges and to constructing optimal relationships of love and relationships.

However, there is an important twist to all of this. It is not just that, in as much as we understand the world, we can create it, but that, whether we understand the world or not, it always also creates us. When Darwin summarized the emerging knowledge on the origin of species, and when, subsequently, humans developed the knowledge of genetic engineering, it wasn’t just that we got better in shaping our world. Our new technologies also reflected back on us in no small dimension. Idealism took a major blow. And again, idealism will take another blow when medical science will have advanced to a stage, as it surely will, when in principle, it can afford humans an indefinite life span.

Alas, we are not quite there yet.

But regardless of when our technologies will have sufficiently evolved for this exciting prospect, the fact remains that it is our technologies, or (to use an older, and wider, designation) our modes of production that shape our opinions, and that only with sufficient cognition, we can see beyond this.

Just as our knowledge on the origin of species has important roots in 19th century philosophy, so does our understanding of the manner in which our modes of production reflect back on our minds.

The following is quoted from the preface of Karl Marx’ “A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy”, written in 1859:

“The general conclusion at which I arrived and which, once reached, became the guiding principle of my studies can be summarized as follows. In the social production of their existence, men inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production. The totality of these relations of production constitutes the economic structure of society, the real foundation, on which arises a legal and political superstructure and to which correspond definite forms of social consciousness. The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life. It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.”

http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1859/critique-pol-economy/preface.htm

In the original German version, the above quote reads like this: “Das allgemeine Resultat, das sich mir ergab und, einmal gewonnen, meinen Studien zum Leitfaden diente, kann kurz so formuliert werden: In der gesellschaftlichen Produktion ihres Lebens gehen die Menschen bestimmte, notwendige, von ihrem Willen unabhaengige Verhaeltnisse ein, Produktionsverhaeltnisse, die einer bestimmten Entwicklungsstufe ihrer materiellen Produktivkraefte entsprechen. Die Gesamtheit dieser Produktionsverhaeltnisse bildet die oekonomische Struktur der Gesellschaft, die reale Basis, worauf sich ein juristischer und politischer Ueberbau erhebt und welcher bestimmte gesellschaftliche Bewuusstseinsformen entsprechen. Die Produktionsweise des materiellen Lebens bedingt den sozialen, politischen und geistigen Lebensprozess ueberhaupt. Es ist nicht das Bewusstsein der Menschen, das ihr Sein, sondern umgekehrt ihr gesellschaftliches Sein, das ihr Bewusstsein bestimmt.”

http://www.mlwerke.de/me/me13/me13_007.htm

You can read an explanation, written more than 70 years ago, through the following link:

Society and Mind in Marxian Philosophy

http://www.marxists.org/archive/pannekoe/society-mind/ch01.htm

To conclude that our minds mirror our modes of production is good science. But there is an anachronism in Marx’ thought. If anyway the modes of production determine ideologies, then the interference of Communist revolutionaries would be obsolete.

But Marx himself was a child of his times, when socialism among intellectuals was a fashionable idea.

Furthermore, his analysis of everybody belonging to a social class, the interests of which are reflected in his consciousness and ideologies, had more appeal in the 19th century but is less applicable to the more pluralistic and globalized present times. Nevertheless, it remains true that while on a social level, everybody’s consciousness and ideology is a representation of the modes of production, this consciousness and ideology is, on an individual level, a representation, or simply a rationalization, of a person’s interests.

I myself, of course, cannot escape the fact that my own ideology, too, is a representation of both, current technologies and my individual interests. However, I have at least some awareness of this interdependence.
